OK   here's the last of the task lighting installed with a custom bracket off the motor mount.   Took a little noodling, but I can get to everything and adjust belts just fine.   The cool thing is if I move or rotate the head, the lights follow.  Still waiting on the electrical bits to wire it all up though...

Tomorrow the LED lights go up

Lighting electrical stuff showed up today  I can get on with wiring the Mill.   The ceiling fixtures will need to wait until a new taller ladder is purchased.... >:(

Looks great Dave and I can see a difference for sure though the camera adjusts to the greater light and probably diminishes the effect photographically. That has to make a huge difference though.

Any progress on the overhead lights yet. The best thing about them other than the increased light output is that they are dead silent. No more annoying hum. :whoohoo:
